Haiti Vineyard Response

Vineyard Response to Haiti.
This is what we have decided to do at this time. As the recovery process goes on we will up date our response to the greatest need.
“This is what the LORD Almighty says: ‘Administer true justice; show mercy and compassion…  Zechariah 9: 8-10

How can our church respond?
At present, we have been told that for now Haiti is not a place for non-professional staff. Please leave your relief efforts to the disaster relief agencies unless you have the special skills and training that are needed. They will let us know when teams for recovery will be needed. For now please partner with the organizations already in the country.
The greatest needs of Haiti to date are:
1. Cash is the most urgent need at present
We are partnering with other churches in the Dayton area to send a cash gift
— Together we are going to send relief to the people we know in Haiti
— January 23 & 24 we will take up a special offering during all our services
— This is a time to let people experience the kindness of God

2. Gather supplies (New and sealed)
Over the next few weeks we will gather items to send to Haiti via shipping container. Collect items listed below, pack them in large Rubbermaid containers with lids with lists of supplies within and attached to the container attached.
— Diapers — Toilet paper — Baby formula

3. Pray
God hears good people when they pray
— For Pastors, Missionaries, First responders
— For the hurting and lost
— People to find their families and loved ones
— For those who are grieving
— For those sick, injured
— For Godʼs peace to rest on the nation
— For an open door of ministry and for the gospel to be presented clearly

“He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act
justly and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.”
Micah 6:8-9
